Christmas 2011 - Back Online And A Little Bit Rounder!

A very happy 'in between' Christmas and New Year to you all!

I trust you did the decent thing and ate and drank too much!  Oh my, we certainly did.  In fact, do let me know if you see my waistline anywhere because I sure can't find it!

We had the loveliest Christmas Day.  We spent the day at my Mum In Law's with D's brother, his wife and three children.  D's Dad died from cancer in early January five years ago and this is the very first year my Mum In Law has been able to cope with being at home for the festive period.

On Boxing Day, my middle brother and his wife hosted a family buffet.  We've had a difficult year on my side of the family so it was lovely for most of us to get together and have a laugh.

(Message to my two brothers - you will NEVER, EVER beat me at Articulate!!!) *circles hips in jubilant and annoying winner's dance kind of way*

Today?  Well, today I'm staying in my pyjamas and cooking roast beef and yorkshire pudding.  Oh yes, and playing with my bestest Christmas pressie ever ...

My new laptop!!!!

Yay!  I'm back online and raring to go!

She's so pretty and shiny and even has a Cath Kidston sleeping bag! :-)  How lucky am I?

For now, whether you're out braving the crowds or taking it easy with loved ones, have a wonderful day.

Speak soon.


PS.  I've just taken a big swig of coffee and nearly choked on the pine needle that was floating in it!


  1. Hurrah for the shiny new toy :)

    Heres to more blogging in 2012 and less pine needle related drinking incidents ;)
